New standard supports alternative “blendstock” fuel

Aug 28 2018 Read 773 Times

The ASTM committee on petroleum products, liquid fuels, and lubricants (D02) has approved a new standard for a renewable bio-based blendstock that can be used as a diesel alternative. The standard (D8181) covers specifications for microemulsion blendstock for middle distillate fuels.

“This new standard is needed because there is no relevant existing standard for this type of chemistry,” says Kristin Aramthanapon, technical advisor at Sylvatex, Inc. She adds that these specifications will be used by manufacturers and customers to ensure that the material being produced and used meets quality and consistency measures while also correlating with vehicle performance to fuel properties.
